That is, until, I moseyed on into Azaleas on 10th Street in the East Village. I explained my issue; they presented the Duet bra. Made in Poland, this difficult-to-find push-up is made with a delicate flat stretch lace, and rides so low on your chest that revealing shirts are no problem. The comfortable under wire gives just enough support.
The Duet is available in six or seven colors, with a seasonal color in the rotation.
